Why I’m Welcoming 2017 with Open Arms

Wow, another year has come and gone.  Unfortunately, 2016 has been a tough year for my family.  It took two of my Grandmothers and a beloved pet with it.  Because of this I’m definitely looking forward to a more positive 2017!


Here are just a few reasons I’m excited to welcome 2017:

  1. Luckily, at some point in 2017 this deployment will be over! Believe me, I really can’t wait!
  2. This month, I will be starting my first real teaching job!  Thankfully, I secured an Internship a few months ago.  This will be my first paid position within a school as an actual new-teacher.  I am beyond excited for the challenges and experience that this new job will bring.
  3. In the spring, I will be a college graduate!  I can’t believe how quickly 4 years of college has gone.  Seriously, it feels like I was a Freshman just yesterday.  But I’ll be  wearing the mortarboard and walking the stage so soon!
  4. This summer, I’ll be running my first half marathon… (provided that I keep up with my training).  Unfortunately around the holidays, I fell off the training wagon, but now I’m ready to get back on and give it my all!  I already registered for the race, so  I can’t let that money go to waste.
  5. After the half marathon, my Love and I are planning on closing the distance!  This will be a scary, yet exciting time for both of us, where we will be able to begin our life together and grow as a couple along the way.

By the looks of it, 2017 will be quite the exciting year.  I can’t wait for everything to fall into place, and for all my hard work to pay off.

I hope you all have just as great of a 2017 as I hope to!  What will the year bring for you?
